The socket pierced the missile’s skin, causing fuel and oxidizer leaks. Created by the Air Force for the men who stood "on alert" with the Atlas, this technical manual contains descriptions of the HGMF missile, launch complex, handling and transport, checkout and launch operations, emergency procedures, and more.

Originally restricted, it has been declassified and is reprinted here in book form.3/5(1).

This report discusses the technical underpinnings needed for a transition to networkcentric forces. The Titan 23G, Titan II(23)G, Titan 2(23)G or Titan II SLV was an American expendable launch system derived from the LGMC Titan II intercontinental ballistic missile.

Retired Titan II missiles were converted by Martin Marietta, into which the Glenn L. Martin Company, which built the original Titan II, had merged.
